William Spurgeon (Bill)
It is with great sadness we share with you the passing of, William Spurgeon Scott on November 25th at the CR Dist. Gen. Hospital, with the love and care of family by his side. He is survived by his sisters Janet and Mary, sons and daughters Wendy, Berna (Bert), Bill (Judy), Mary Ellen (Tom), Robin (Hilda), Faye Dene (Dan), daughter-in-law Judy, many grandchildren, great grandchildren, two great-great grandchildren many nieces, nephews, and many, many dear friends.
He was predeceased by his wife Bernice, son Bernard, son-in-law Bill, granddaughter Janet, grandsons Wade and Randy.
Bill was born May 4, 1926 in Bathurst, New Brunswick, the youngest son of eight children; there were six boys and two girls. He worked hard as a young lad on the family farm until the end of Word War II. Then with the help of family, and much encouragement, he rode the train to the West Coast in search of employment along with his brother Sam. He lived a prosperous 81 years of raising a family of seven children with Bea, working hard throughout the North Island, mainly in the logging industry, and enjoying his favourite hobbies: camping, fishing, farming and baking. He was most passionate regarding his family and being a part of their lives. Bill loved the outdoors and enjoyed making people laugh with him over his own life’s stories. We will miss his sense of humour and his teasing.
He has gone to be with all his loved ones that have gone before him.
A Celebration of Life Service will be held Saturday, December 1, 2007 at 12:00 noon, at the Elks Lodge, 516 South Dogwood Street. Refreshments to follow.
